We will be re-opening with everyone's safety in mind by using CDC, UCC and other guidelines.  

- Before you enter, Greeters will ask you questions (have you in the past 24hrs
  had a fever, a cough, or difficulty breathing, or in the past 14 days have you
  been close to someone with COVID).     
        - If you answer "yes" to any of these, we will ask that you 
          and family members with you) do not enter the church
          that day.
        - TIP: Ask yourself these questions at home and if any are
           "yes", don't travel to church.

- Face covering: Bring your face covering. You will need to wear a face mask
  while inside the church building and Sanctuary and stay 6ft from others who
  are not in your family group.                                                     

- Sanitizer: As you enter the church building, we'll have hand sanitizer to squirt
  in your hand and you'll see sanitizer in the Sanctuary and hand-washing
  instructions in the restrooms.

- Seating: Ushers will help you find a seat (we will not use all pews) and to enter 
  and leave 6ft apart.

- Communion: You can bring your own elements (juice & bread) for your family
  group, or we will have pre-packaged cup & wafer available for you.

- Announcements and Prayer Requests: We will handle these in new safer ways.

- Initially we will not have Fellowship time (Coffee Hour), Sunday School, Child 
  Care or Congregational singing.

- Save your "Boxtops for Education" year round. Please place them in the mason jar on the shelves in the parlor.
  

  Lebanon Veterans' Hospital
  - Donate your old magazines. Please place them on the pew across from the elevator, beside the recycle box - not in
  the box. Our sexton, Cindy Miller, will deliver them.

  Coupons for Our Troops
  - This is an ongoing mission/outreach project for Faith. Just bring the manufacturer coupon books from the newspaper
  to church and put them in the orange basket in the parlor. They will be sent to commissaries for out troops.
  Manufacturers will honor coupons up to six months past the expiration date. You can cut them out or bring the full
